without comments

The U.S. Postal Service announced, in September 2011, a number of proposals designed to significantly reduce its operational costs. One proposal under consideration is a study to redesign the mail processing and transportation network. This study may result in consolidation of processing centers from 461 mail processing facilities to approximately 200 facilities. As a part of the review and planning stage, it is important to understand the sources available in the transportation and distribution industries that can meet the potential future demands. The purpose of this sources sought notice is to solicit responses from interested suppliers to determine which are capable of providing potential transportation management services to the U.S. Postal Service.
